I would like to propose that the visual indication of what the mouse
is pointing at be made more standard; currently it can be inverse video,
blinking, or a box around it. The latter seems the most winning.
Probably it would be easy to try changing the editor to put a box
around the character the mouse is pointing at, or the whole line
it is pointing at if it is pointing well off the end of a line.
We can see whether or not this looks obnoxious.
If you load the latest stuff, or NZWEI;BOXTST then SETQ'ing *MOUSE-BLINKER*
to either *MOUSE-CHAR-BLINKER* or *MOUSE-BOX-BLINKER* will give the two
behaviours. I find the box much more obtrusive.
